Another Christmas card from me today – I am on a run of them at the moment. I have used this image of carolling penguins from Scribbles Designs for the Creative Moments music themed challenge.
I printed and coloured the digistamp, then printed the circular text with some of the music notes which I used as a frame by cutting the central part with a die. I used 3d foam to raise this frame over the image and mounted the lot on a red mat before affixing to a 7 inch square card.
The image was imported into Serif Craft Artist, then copied and pasted so that I could crop the additional images down to make more snowflakes and notes. It was then coloured simply, using gel pens and mounted into a frame designed for cross stitch Christmas decorations. Some beads and sequins “snow” was added before backing, to make the shaker topper for my card.
For my Teddy themed card I have used a digi image from Wink Wink Ink. The sweet and versatile Teddy bear image is called bear hug and is available as a line drawing or pre-coloured in dark brown and tan.
I printed the tan image twice and made a thank you sentiment. I then fussy cut the head and hands of the bear and layered using foam pads to give the impression of the bear holding the sign. The background paper and fussy cut flower embellishment came from a Daisy Trail digikit called Bright Blooms.
